Mubarak left a moment ago. He's gone.
I've never been more proud of our species on this planet!
This is not about Egypt folks, nor even the Middle East.
The implications for world politics and ordinary people are historic.
A century from now, the Cairo uprisings will be ranked in history along with Magna Carta, the French Revolution and the 1960's so-called 'hippie' revolution. It is a progression. The usual power brokers were left flabbergast for 17 days. All they could do was repeatedly stammer "the situation is fluid."
The word 'fluid', in this instance, meant nothing more than "we can't control this."
Egyptians, you are magnificent. You have shown the world.
Bankers beware! Insurance beware!
In time, a version of Cairo, a global version, will awake to the planetary petro-pharma-banking cabal and root them out as well.
Humanity is awakening. Cairo is a clarion call. While there will undoubtedly be copy-cat political actions around the world, the next big threshold will be world banking and the role of compound interest at the heart of almost all the world's other problems.
Environmental and economic sanity, anyone?
Can't wait for Fidel's next blog from Cuba. lol
Crafty old bugger might just frame the historical implications of this eruption more accurately than most.
